Maine Attorneys Handling Mesothelioma Claims

Although mesothelioma can affect multiple different areas of the body, the symptoms often resemble those of pleural mesothelioma, the most common form of mesothelioma. Pleural mesothelioma is contracted by breathing in asbestos fibers. Peritoneal mesothelioma, on the other hand, is contracted by ingesting the fibers. Unfortunately, Maine residents are highly susceptible to asbestos poisoning due to the large number of high-risk occupations in the state.

The symptoms of mesothelioma include:

    Removing Materials Containing Asbestos

  • Chronic chest pain/chest wall pain
  • Pleural effusion (fluid buildup in the wall of the chest)
  • Fatigue
  • Anemia
  • Abdominal pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Secondary lung infection
  • Weight loss
  • Wheezing/coughing/hoarseness

If you notice any of these symptoms, especially in tandem, speak with your medical professional immediately. The earlier mesothelioma is diagnosed, the better the prognosis. Your medical professional can diagnose your mesothelioma using tissue biopsy in combination with MRI, CT scan, PET scan and x-ray.

Treatment options include:

  • Surgery to remove tumors
  • Radiation therapy to kill localized cancer cells
  • Chemotherapy for systemic treatment
  • Immunotherapy
  • Many other experimental treatments
